Connect Your Summer
Mondays, 10:00-10:30 AM
Fridays, 1:00-1:30 PM
*Please note that there will be no programs on Monday, October 13 as the library will be closed.
Canton Public Library’s mission is Connecting Your Community. Connect Your Summer aims to be an exciting way to bring the community together to share their summer experiences and their summer reading, and to emphasize the library as an important resource for all.
Because Connect Your Summer is the mainstay of our summer library programming, we are asking you to help us learn and improve by sharing feedback about your Connect Your Summer experience. The survey will take about five minutes to complete:
- If you participated in Connect Your Summer, Take the Participant Survey
- If you did not participate, Share your feedback
The surveys will remain available until August 31, so tell your friends! Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts with us. As a token of our appreciation, there may even be something badge-y in it for you.
